What is International-Mindedness at ELM?

International-mindedness is:

  • Respect for yourself, and respect for others, whether the context is the classroom or the whole world.
  • Knowing where you come from but also being a global citizen.
  • An equal appreciation of the whole world and all the different nationalities, languages, and cultures it has to offer.

ELM School Principles

Student Centered

1)       Each child is unique, and learning is student-centered (not curriculum-centered).

2)       A balanced approach towards student development, where the academic aspect is emphasized, yet physical, social, emotional, moral and spiritual aspects are equally important.

3)       Developing positive pedagogy and good spiritual acumen in students depends mainly on the synergy of education, mentorship, and positive parent involvement.

Technology as a tool

4)       Technology is a tool & is integrated to a high degree from an early age as a means to facilitate learning in the 21st century.

Internationally Minded + Locally Rooted

5)       Fostering an international mindset, that encourages peace, global citizenship, diversity and universal human values.

6)       Honoring the local (Egyptian, Arabic & Islamic) heritage, values and language.
